it’s been exactly 10 years since Rachel got off that plane and I’m still not over it.
this is how you end a show. you don’t give the audience exactly what they want, or take it completely away from them either, you leave them with the idea of what could be
you don’t throw all sanity to hell in the hopes of going out with a bang, you go out with a warm hug and a thank you
you don’t give the characters the perfect dream ending, you give them something better
and this is how you end a show that is so powerful, people are still emotional about it 10 years after it ends.

Fox spent much of its VMA coverage questioning Beyonce’s ability to promote feminism while being "extremely sexual."
Megyn Kelly labeled Beyonce’s message and lyrics as “skanky,” while a FoxNews.com article claimed the singer “seemed to ensure her behind was the focus on each song, all the while educating young viewers about feminism.”
On The Five, Fox hosts suggested “she’s auditioning for a future husband,” and Greg Gutfeld announced that ”the greatest thing about pop culture is convincing women that acting like strippers is empowering.”
What Fox failed to recognize is that expressing sexuality does not automatically remove a woman’s right to discuss equality. Instead, the network righteously shamed Beyonce and used her performance as basis to attack feminism as a whole. In reality, such policing of women’s sexuality has harmed progress toward equality. The very same mindset has been used to dismiss women’s need to access contraception, and blame rape survivors for their own assaults.
If anyone is going to be shamed, it should be Fox and its irresponsible coverage of women’s issues.
Hello! I’d recommend practicing some poses in a mirror! :) Everyone has their good angles, so try to find yours beforehand. Most of the time, it’s more appealing to slightly tilt your face (and upper body) to the side rather than smiling straight on with the camera. Having some medium-long side swept bangs and adding volume to your hair at the top can help to balance the roundness of your face. If you have thick hair, section out your hair and bring a fair amount to the front while leaving the rest behind.
My best tip deals with your smile, and it’s the one I think about every time I take a picture. If you want your smile to be genuine, THINK ABOUT SOMETHING OR SOMEONE YOU LOVE. Sometimes, I think about snuggling up to my kitty, seeing my boyfriend in a long button up shirt, or eating the warmest chocolate chip cookie in the world. The few seconds before the photographer click the button on the camera, think of something that makes you happy. That should work like a charm because it’ll capture you in a sweet moment. :)
Hello lovely! I just started school this week, so I haven’t had time to answer my Tumblr messages… but I do try to reply to them all when I have free time (which is now during my study break xD)
Thanks for writing to me, and I really appreciate your support for my Youtube channel ^____^ I know what it’s like to deal with strict Asian parents when it comes to relationships. My boyfriend is part Black and has dark skin, which didn’t leave a good impression with my family at first. He was probably the least expected person they thought I’d bring home lol. It was a struggle trying to get them past the appearance, but over the course of a few years, they’ve learned to accept him.
Overall, I think it’s important that you shouldn’t date for your parents. You should be with who YOU want to be because down the line, you’re the one spending the most time with your partner. As long as your boyfriend makes you happy, then I’m sure that your parents will eventually understand, even if he doesn’t meet their expectations at first. Before you talk to your mom, ask yourself whether this is a relationship you believe in and see a long future with. If it is, then you can be ready to talk to her. Explain the many ways that your boyfriend make you a better person and focus on his positive traits. Then, let her know his physical appearance and cultural background afterward. Reiterate the fact that he makes you happy, and that’s what you’d like in a relationship. Hopefully, she’ll understand and will be willing to meet him. :)
Yessssss! I actually value my time alone in college, especially when I have class after my break. I use that time not only to eat but to catch up on my schoolwork, so I like to be by myself and have my space. The time I’d like to eat and socialize is well… at social events xD
I’m not sure how it is at your college, but when I look around at my college, the majority of the students are alone at lunchtime. Remember that it’s not like high school anymore; people won’t judge you for being a “loner.” It’s actually important to be comfortable with being by yourself. The awkwardness and weirdness you feel is most likely just in your own mind, and you can choose to overcome that! (:
Awww thank you!! ^_______^ I’m planning to trim off a few inches soon. It’s getting too long now.
Hello! There are many factors to this since everyone has different hair types/styles. Generally, I’d recommend smaller irons (1/2” - 1”) for short-medium hair because they’d provide tighter curls and doesn’t take off much of the length. If your hair is longer, you can try thicker barrels for softer curls to save time.
I don’t think thickness and thinness really matters because you can solve this issue by grabbing smaller/bigger sections of hair and adjust accordingly. (:
Aside from all of this, you can also take into consideration the brand of the curling iron and the different types as well (curling iron with clamp, curling wand, curling iron with spirals, etc.). Some hair work best with one and not the other, so it’d be nice to experiment with different kinds!
I think ombré should be easy to maintain since you don’t have to worry about root touch ups - you just need to re-do the color once it dulls. It’s also a nice plus that it’s at your tips so your hair doesn’t get much more damaged and you can trim a few inches off whenever. I could imagine how the process of doing an ombré would go, but I personally have never done it on myself and wouldn’t be very useful in giving tips to you ^^; I’d recommend watching some Youtube videos and doing research on Google (there should be tons of tutorial). Red is definitely a harder color to maintain since it fades quickly, but it’s still doable. If you don’t want to bleach your hair and put red over, an alternative is to use the L’OREAL HiColor Highlights in Red. I’ve put that over my virgin black hair before and it worked well. This option will be less damaging, but the gradient won’t be as noticeable. Have fun and good luck! :) I hope it’ll turn out well for you ^____^
